2021 Commencal Meta TR 29 vs 2021 Nukeproof Reactor 290
I am considering one of the two bikes. Both of them are great bikes having fantastic reviews and priced very closely. The differences are summarized in the table. In red, I have highlighted what I consider an advantage. Very close specs so decision will be very difficult. If anyone has experience riding both of them I would appreciate some comments.
The following specs are based on brand websites as of November 2020 available to Canadian customers. Both brands reserve the right to modify these specs. Since my height falls between two recommended sizes, I have provided specs for both sizes and tried to be accurate.
The best place to purchase these bikes is probably the Chain Reaction Cycles online store https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/. They operate out of UK and specialize in online sales with large discounts on bikes, accessories, clothing, parts, etc.
Which one would you choose for trail riding?
